I'm in the early stage of planning long, self-contained 2014-15 tours in Iceland/UK/Scandinavia. I'm experienced enough in "48 states touring" to manage with almost any map resources
(sometimes exhaustive, sometimes nothing and at other times anything/everything in between), but I haven't been to Iceland/UK/Scandinavia before and I need high-quality maps that'll give
me good coverage and show all my route options.
I'd rather not carry a case full of Michelin maps along with a small library of travel guide books and I think I'd rather approach this quandary with an electronic device. Regrettably, I'm unburdened
by any form of knowledge or experience.
Would what I need to accomplish be best approached with a tablet relying on internet-accessible maps, a small laptop with loaded map software, a high-end smart-phone or something else? I'm
presently in the dark and need some hints/clues/direction to get my research program started up.
Any and all input will be gratefully appreciated and thanks in advance for your help.
